right now? apparently, a couple of years ago the fbi did talk to one of the brothers. >> reporter: yeah. the fbi interviewed the elder brother tamerlan in 2011. the fbi is coming under question because at the time they found no terror activity. so of course there are a lot of questions now including from some senators on capitol hill as to why these two boys might have fallen through the cracks. could they have prevented this? >> hopefully we'll get some answers soon. susan mcginnis live in boston, thank you. boston was on the minds of runners and spectators at the weekend's london marathon. they observed a moment of silence prior to yesterday's race and wore black ribbons. security forces were increased by 40%. even prince harry was on hand mingling in the crowd. >> no, it was never an option to cancel. >> never an option to cancel that race. they had about 35,000 runners on. in e who finished the

air traffic controllers on the job. the faa called for two furlough days for every two-week period to cut more than $600 million from the budget. airlines filed a lawsuit on friday asking a federal court to stop the furlough of air traffic controllers. they say that these cuts in hours will result in travel delays of up to an hour. a travel industry analyst says what's happening is political gamesmanship. >> the faa was shut down a few years ago, flights weren't affected. it seems to me like there is a request or directive out there to take steps so that passengers will be inconvenienced and that they will call their elected officials to get them to take action. >> reporter: here's a live picture of mineta san jose international airport. i only found one 30-minute delay this morning and a couple of 10-minute delays in oakland and sfo is on time. even if sfo avoids furloughs, travelers here could still feel
